14 January 2014:Even though Aam Aadmi Party is not in power either at the Centre or the state of Manipur, it will relentlessly strive for a new system to usher in change in the state, asserted Habung Payeng, North East In-charge and National Executive Member of Aam Aadmi Party.
He was speaking on the occasion of the Aam Aadmi Manipur State conference held at Manipur Press Club as part of his tour to the state to inspect how the party workers are holding up and to talk to newly inducted members of the party in the state.
He asserted that Manipur can be a champion state in all spheres. Since the party felt that the north eastern states had a huge role to play to bring a positive change in the country, the party had been giving emphasis to these states.
Regretting the prevailing situation of the country where crimes and corruptions has got entrenched in the society, Habung Payeng charged that taxes collected from the common people has been misused by those in power instead of taking real initiatives to develop the interiors of the country where the situation and conditions are deplorable.
Lambasting the Congress government, he asserted that the common people are now fed up of the Congress but as no other party was strong enough to rule the country, they vote for Congress out of despair and limited choice. “But now the Aam Aadmi Party which stands for the common people have taken roots in the country. The people need to remain calm as a new horizon is in view”, he added.
The conference was also attended by Aam Aadmi Party State Co-ordinator Th Manihar and newly inducted member Hareshwar Goswami.
